The first week of the tour among the gypsies is over. When we thought the last
time (2 years ago), the WORLD has changed, so now it was 100 times stronger.
I was thinking of you being here, it would be great film, how are the people
changing every day more and more. We had also meeting with the Catholics, who
are there in charge.
First, we had been in Zehra, village looking like small Beverly Hills. Small
cute town- and family-houses, the Volkswagens and other cars in front of them,
everywhere clean. Since there was no other room, where we could stay, we had
the programs in the CHURCH!!!! You read it well - in the local church.
First they were not very sure to let us in, but because of the coming rain,
they opened it and later everything turned into the right direction. The gypsies
accepted it very openly, they were very enthusiastic about the music and could
easily feel "ceplo" - hot, or "zimno" - cool - in their
palms and over their heads.
On second day, we brought the picture of Shri Mataji (we forgot on the first
day-ooops), we put it on the church altar, lit the candle on and were happily
singing and meditating. As usually, mostly the children were staying till the
end. On Friday, the Church people came to sing, so we stayed outside. They couldn't
let it go, so they tried to revolt the gypsies against us, saying that we believe
in satan and if they start to follow us, they would get sick, etc.
It was beautiful DIVINE PLAY (pity, we don´t have it on video). There
were some of gypsies, who didn´t break down, they felt the vibrations
and it was clear for them... If I should write about the individual cases, how
they were changing in front of our eyes, this would be 10MB mail. It was complitely
different in the other village of Rudnany, which is very poor settlement.
Simply - OPEN HEARTS!! We had the DISCO with live music. First they didn´t
want to believe, that "gadzos" - white people, can enjoy so much with
them. It was GREAT! Also the meditations and children - they know already many
songs - Ganesha, Kundalini and so on.
The chief lady, Mrs. Berkyova, said, the children were imitating, playing on
us - the group and the audience. And when we appeared at the village, so much
joy, they were running towards us. In the end of week, Mrs. Berkyova said: "Many
things have changed from the time you came. I wouldn´t believe if somebody
would tell me.
The children are completely different, they don´t take the things for
themselves, but bring them to the owners. They can sit quietly, they remember
many songs. I do footsoak every evening. Before I always used to have swollen
eyes and now - NOTHING! When Daniela started to sing raga, all the children
sat down and started to listen.
One old man came out of the house, brought the chair, put his hands on the
knees, closed his eyes and started to meditate... We had many similar experiences...
it was beautiful. There is Silvo, Bhakti and some French yogis now. I would
like to go there in the end of next week again.
Greetings and AHOOOOI!
